BEREA — Delaney Hill of London was among more than 80 students who participated in the 16th Annual Dance Marathon at Baldwin Wallace University.
As the largest philanthropy organization on campus, Dance Marathon brings together the community, students and sponsors. The 12-hour marathon consists of performers, dancing and HIV/AIDS education. This year’s theme was “Sweet Sixteen” and students raised more than $31,000 for the cause.
Hill, a graduate of London High School majoring in psychology, danced from noon to midnight, raising money and awareness in the fight against pediatric HIV/AIDS through Up 4 the Fight, a collegiate fundraising program. All proceeds went to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, which seeks to educate and reduce the transmission and cases of pediatric AIDS worldwide.
Baldwin Wallace University, founded in 1845, was one of the first colleges to admit students without regard to race or gender. An independent, coeducational university of 4,000 students, Baldwin Wallace offers coursework in the liberal arts tradition in 75 academic areas. Located in Berea, 12 miles from downtown Cleveland, Baldwin Wallace offers students the cultural, educational and business advantages of a major metropolitan area.
